The first of my postcards is postmarked Earl's Court and dated 1925 but there is nothing else to identify where this might be. The pitch looks dangerously close to the building which looks more like a hotel than anything at all like a cricket pavilion. And yet the pitch looks as though it was regularly used.
Earl's Court will be hosting the volleyball events for the 2012 Olympics, the women's events today, 28 July, and the men's events tomorrow. In the London Olympics of 1948 it hosted the boxing, weightlifting and wrestling.
The second card is a PHQ card issued by the Post Office in 1980 as part of a series on sport.
Both cards look old fashioned now as the sport has moved on, at least as far as clothing is concerned.
